Evaporative cooling towers for an artificial snow plant in Japan

September 27th, 2018

Having installed many artificial snow plants in the Alps, supplied an open circuit tower for a ski facility in Japan (prefecture of Gunma). The machinery was chosen by Sufag, which handled the engineering and snow production part of the plant.

The Sufag design firm has international experience in the field: it has two main offices in France and Sweden and 8 distribution branches in other countries. 50,000 snow guns manufactured by the company are installed all over the world. The company’s approach, on the site, is based on maximum production even at marginal temperatures, easy plant maintenance and sustainability of the solutions designed to last for a long time.

Performance, maintainability and durability were therefore the requirements that were found to be met by the PME-E 4103 Container CW Snow open-circuit cooling towers offer. A set of structural characteristics that were adapted to the Gunma setting (Japanese prefecture known for its winter tourism as well as for its spas).

  • The installed capacity of the tower is 120 m3/h: this amount of water is cooled and transferred to the snow guns.
  • All the MITA cooling towers are maintained through their large side walls (which give easy access to all the internal parts to be maintained).
  • Finally, durability is ensured by widespread use of fibreglass: an uncorrodable material.

Another factor that characterizes both MITA Cooling Technologies and Sufag is that both companies adopt a consulting approach to their customers, listening to their needs so as to provide them with a made-to-measure system.

The Container version of the PME-E open-circuit tower is suitable for long-distance transport inside containers. It is, in fact, less wide than the standard width of 220 cm.
